I am a native of Dublin, with a good knowlege of the city. I live in a great area, very near town. I am involved in many areas of life. I am used to interacting with people and love to host visitors. I have travelled extensively in France and Australia, as well as many other European countries. I travel regularly to New York and London. I have a great interest in current affairs, music, and the theatre. I am also involved in a number of committees where I meet people from diverse walks of life. I am on the Executive of the Dublin International Piano Competition,which takes place every three years. Young pianists from all over the world come to Dublin to compete in the Competition, and I work closely with the competitors during the two weeks of the Competition.
